With ‘The Burnt Orange Heresy’ We Look at More Mick Jagger On Film

 

In The Burnt Orange Heresy, Mick Jagger plays the debonair, nefarious art collector, Joseph Cassidy, and he’s terrific—but his role is so small that you long for more of him. This art scene noir is picking up strong word of mouth, with stars Claes Bang (The Square/Dracula) and Elizabeth Debicki (Widows/Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II) singled out for praise.
